In-State & Out-of-State Campus Tours
Campus tours are an essential component of the college preparatory program. Students transitioning out of high school sometimes select a college/university to attend without visiting first to solidify their decision. Once they arrive and realize after the first semester they made a bad decision, they want to transfer somewhere else or just come home. This is why visiting the campus before you attend is vitally important. To date the Crowley Foundation has toured 7 in-state campuses (300+ students), 60% have chosen to attend one of the colleges that we toured and 1 out of state campus tour to Langston University (10 students) 3 seniors received acceptance letters, 1 student received the Crowley Foundation/Langston University scholarship and Langston’s Higher Regent scholarship. Also, one of the students received a $500 book stipend.
The tours are available for students in grade 8-12 statewide. Each tour is designed for our students which include peer to peer interactions, personal conversation with department heads, Q & A with Financial Aid and meet & greet with student activity board. After the tour each student receives a school t-shirt, information packet and a free lunch.
